The popularity of scattering a loved one’s ashes at sea is steadily growing as people look to the organic nature of the ocean to help them bring closure to the loss of a loved one with a green burial. Scattering the ashes at sea combines a sense of finality and a sense of new beginning. It returns us to nature and the origin of our being.
Many people choose the sea as the special place for their loved one to have their remains scattered into the wind. This is normally done for those who loved the ocean, whether it was sailing, fishing, or just sitting and watching the waves roll in. There are other choices that you may prefer if you are considering scattering your loved ones ashes but do not want to do it out in the ocean.
Scattering ashes is a very common practice but it is also final so you must be certain that you are happy with your choice. One of the wonderful things about cremation is that you do not have to make a decision immediately. You can reflect on your loved one until you find the perfect place to scatter their ashes.
